This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 1st generation (2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) Nissan Armada in changing a burnt out license plate light bulb.

Owners of other Nissan or Infiniti vehicles such as the Versa, Cube, Sentra, Altima, LEAF, Maxima, 370Z, Juke, Rogue, Murano, Xterra, Pathfinder, Quest, Frontier, Titan, QX56, Q50, G37, EX37, QX60, FX37, FX50 and QX80 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement license plate light bulb is part number 2825 from various manufacturers such as Sylvania, GE, Eiko, Philips and PIAA.

You may also use any other miniature wedge base bulb such as the # 168, W5W, 194 or a brighter LED bulb.

The only tool needed to replace the bulb is a small flathead screwdriver used to pry out the light housing from the bumper.

The first two steps are to move to the side of the bumper with the burnt out license plate light bulb and locate the small notch at the rear edge of the housing.

Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in to the notch and gently pry out the light housing.
